2:05am
the months old micro fische, please, everything is on line real time, not a day later. that's the greatness of a level playing news. the bad news? from nbc news, this is "today" with kathie lee gifford and hoda kotb from studio 1-a in rockefeller plaza. >> congratulions, everybody, you made it to tri-day friday. that's right, the big week with everybody back to school, back to work. >> and the fall. yes, the fall has kind of begun. all right, so this is kind of an interesting story we're starting with. when your kids lose their teeth, okay, and put them under the pillow. >> they love to do around that age. >> how much money do you put under the pillow for them if your child lost a tooth? apparently, there's an average. the average cost of a tooth is
2:06am
now $3. $3. >> that surprises me with times tough for people. $3 is groceries. i always gave the kids -- i don't even remember how much, but i gave them more for the first tooth, then when they lost the whole mouth -- >> when you were a kid, do you remember getting money under your pillow? >> a quarter. that was in the '80s, you know? >> when a quarter meant something. >> a quarter was a dollar. >> some parents do go crazy, leave $10, $20 under the pillow for a tooth. you ruin it for the other kids. >> human nature is never going to change, hoda. as soon as you accept that, you're going to be a happier person. >> 32 teeth, 32 times $3 is, what? >> $96? >> $96, so there. that's all i have to say about that. allegedly, i did.
2:07am
i didn't study math. this is sad, you hear about the kids who allegedly cheated on the test at harvard about the introduction to congress. but anyway, this is upsetting. this best-selling author, who has been posting positive reviews on amazon.com, not just posting great reviews of his own -- never seen what he looked like. >> he's a crime writer, he writes crime novels, you may have read it "a simple act of violence." >> i missed that. >> he wrote on his own amazon page. he wrote "a modern masterpiece." can you imagine? >> cuts your soul. >> a modern masterpiece. >> we all think what we write is. let somebody else say it. he was outed by a fellow crime writer for posting the glowing reviews. here's the thing, it's one thing
2:08am
to put the glowing reviews about yourself, he posted really negative reviews for his competitors' novels. that's just not right. >> here's the thing, r.j. elroy confessed that he did it, said he was guilty of it, that's it. >> he said the practice is very widespread among authors. get your friends to do it, you know? >> you know what -- >> don't do it yourself. >> you know what book i'm reading that is so crazy good that i didn't think it was going to be, and i know it's been on the best seller forever, i know i'm late, "killing lincoln." it reads like a -- if they had all history books written like that, kids would devour them. john wilkes booth was an actor, kind of a ryan goessling. he at one point lunged at lincoln. he at one point lunged at lincoln. he was kind of a celebrity and that's why he wanted to kill
2:09am
lincoln in his own house in ford theater, because that's where he performed. >> bad review, hate his politics? >> hated all the stuff with the spring of the slaves, and, you know. >> i heard this is fantastic. >> i can't put it down. >> it's actually being made into a movie, i think, with wrigley scott. >> really? they should write all history books like that, because you can't put it down. and who would have thought? they could do it with every president, i bet, something juicy. >> i was out in l.a. and i went to that -- remember that darling irish actress in "touched by an angel"? i loved her, we became friends. hadn't seen her much. she's married now to mark burnett, who's a brilliant, brilliant producer, "survivor," "apprentice." they are doing a 14-part series called "the bible" for the
2:10am
history channel starting at the first of the year. they said people don't realize how fascinating these stories are. whether you believe they actually happened or not is another question, but the stories themselves have everything. yes, real housewives of the old testament. it's unbelievable. yes, got it all, got it all. anyway, i totally -- >> you know, it's funny, all this history and everything in the past, it's amazing how relevant it is and how fascinating it still is. okay, so here's something restaurants are considering that may upset you. okay, when it is peak time to eat, 7:00, 8:00. >> people peak at different times. >> pretend it's the hot time for a table, many restaurants are considering raising the prices for your meal at that time. the same steak you buy at 5:30 costs you more if you buy it at 8:00 at night, because they want to clear those tables and keep people moving. >> i get it. >> many places have the early
2:11am
bird special, less expensive meal earlier, but now they are thinking about raising the prices later in the evening. >> no, there are new york restaurants that are not going to do that. >> they are talking about it. >> one thing we don't like as much is the trend that they are starting to keep logs about you. >> so in other words, you walk in -- there's some good points to it. they know ms. gifford likes her water sparkling. hi, welcome, here's your table, she likes sparkling water and chardonnay. they know your preferences and record them, but what they also record is if you're a good tipper. >> not afraid of that, frank gifford is the best tipper in the world. go ahead. >> what if frank gifford had the worst waiter in the world? >> he still would. i wouldn't. i wouldn't, i don't think you should condone bad behavior. >> it may be in your log when you walk in as the bad tipper, so they may put you at a crummy table at the back by the kitchen. >> i as a consumer will not go
2:12am
back to that restaurant. there's a way to serve your customers, and i like knowing that, you know, there's certain places we go that take care of you, they know the table you like. i have been writing for the past year, hoda, a little musical, like a 90-minute review more called "table at mary's" about all the people that go to the little pub where frank and i were first married and the stories of the different people that go to the same table every day and have the same thing. and it's such a slice of humanity. >> when do you have time? what are you doing? >> i don't right now, i don't, i don't. john mcdaniels has been writing the music for it. it's been fun. he's going to be 82 on september 14th. >> happy birthday. so here are your most hated pet names for women when your husband/boyfriend calls you
2:13am
these names. here they are, the top five. baby girl. >> ding. >> baby doll. >> ding. >> snookums. >> ding. >> sweet cheeks. >> i kind of like that one. >> you do? and number one, babe. >> i like babe. i like "babe" the movie about the pig. >> i don't like sweet cheeks, anything that sounds fat, i don't like. >> you don't have an ounce of anything anywhere on you. >> wait, wait, let's go to the other names real quick. food names, women don't like being called muffin, baby cakes, again, what i said, pudding, pumpkin, and pickle. >> i think those are all names for babies. you know? >> pumpkin, muffin. >> when we were having cody, we knew it was a boy but didn't have a name yet, we had to study for la mazz, we called the baby pudding until the baby came.
2:14am
cute name for a baby. >> what do you call frank? hot? >> breakfast, lunch, and dinner. bobbie thomas is not with us today. she is in hawaii. she's going to come back, because we love her. >> bring home a lai for us, honey. >> hey. okay, it's time for your -- >> don't you like your hawaiian lais? >> your friday funny. >> have you ever heard, hoda, the saying marriage is like a deck of cards? >> no. >> in the beginning, all you need is two hearts and a diamond. by the end, you wish you had a club and a spade. i don't write them, folks. i'm the dumb smuck that says them on television. actress susan lucci tells us about real love gone wrong. >> how does she know? she's been married forever and they are still in love. we'll be back right after

it is hard to believe susan lucci spent 41 years as erica cain on the soap opera "all my children." she was ducked daytime's leading lady. >> now she is getting ready for her latest role as the host of "deadly affairs" on id investigation discovery. take a look. >> don't you love the summer? everything is just so hot. when the blood heats up, there's no telling what a man or a woman might do. like my second husband said or was it my third? there's no shame in enjoying the finer things in life but best to enjoy them one at a time. there's no shame in enjoying the finer things in life but best to enjoy them one at a time. >> who is better than you? who's better than you? you are having way too much fun.

2:21am
stories. this is really a commentary on the relationship part. when we talk about the victims, of course, there is nothing funny at all. >> but these stories are not about the murder, they are about the marriage. some people get lost in the crime portion, but it's about all the relationships. >> which is why i think people are so fascinated by this. you get the peek behind the closed doors and you see the person punished for the crime. >> look what's happening here. >> that old saying, divorce never, murder, i think about it every day. >> do you miss "all my children?" do you think about it all the time or move past that? >> "all my children" went off the air just about a year ago. it has taken me this entire year. i've been going through a mourning process. it's a loss and i miss "all my children" family. missing the people every day. my friends, my colleagues, in the trenches. >> you worked with the same crew for years.
